Lock off or on for circuit breaker

I m looking for a lock out for individual circuit breaker. I thought that I have seen them but can seem to find. In this case I want to lock the red breaker for the holding tank (red one) off. Any ideas on where to find?

There's tons of lockout/tagout stuff available. I'm not sure what size breaker you're looking for but here's one for a small flip style breaker.

Thanks Big Cat
There are so many I was becoming confused. Will have to take my best guess and order.

FWIW, I drilled a hole through one side of the one that covers my macerator pump and have it secured with a zip tie. Iím hoping that the zip tie, along with two closed valves and one removed valve handle would keep the USCG happy if I am inspected.

Interesting... just installed 4 of those. They work on the AC as well as DC panels.

AFAIK, that's good enough on the Great Lakes, and is what I've done on sailboats. But not good enough on Lake Champlain, according to what I've read, and the first-hand report of my FIL who was gigged for not having broken open and capped the discharge line and thru-hull connections (or removal of the macerator and lines).

I installed an electrical safety switch such as seen on dashboards of race cars, etc. I placed it INSIDE the panel, out of sight, but accessible by opening the hinged panel. When inspected by USCG, demonstrating that the macerator pump breaker is disconnected simply involves turning the breaker on and off. When in areas legal for overboard pumping, just open the panel and throw the lockout switch to make the breaker hot.
